About Migennes

Our closest base to Paris, from Migennes you have a choice of three directions to head in. The Canal de Bourgogne takes you east past quiet towns and beautiful countryside… an ideal ‘escape’. To the west, the pretty Yonne River will take you past the Cathedral town of Sens (8hrs). Or head south towards, and then along, the Canal du Nivernais. Auxerre (5hrs from Migennes), is a bustling city of art, history and impressive cathedrals, in perfect contrast to the many other cliff top villages that overlook this stretch of the canal.

From Migennes it is:

  • 24hrs (49 locks) to our base in Tannay
  • 51hrs (119 locks) to our base in Decize
  • 43.5hrs (69 locks) to our base in Châtillon-sur-Loire (closed for the rest of 2020 but free Le Boat moorings are still available)
